Medical Marijuana Bill Passes Georgia House of Representatives

| March 4, 2014

Medical-Marijuana ATLANTA, GA – The Georgia House overwhelmingly approved a bill that would legalize a type of medical marijuana that helps treat certain seizure disorders on Monday.

House Bill 885, sponsored by Rep. Allen Peake, Republican-Macon, said it is a step in saving the lives of children who can suffer 100 or more seizures a day. The strain of marijuana, known as Charlotte’s Web, has shown that it can ease or eliminate symptoms of patients taking the cannabis oil.

The bill passed 171-4 and now goes to the Senate.

    If they would just legalize it in all forms and tax the heck out of it then that would be progress.
